Central Rain I'm Sorry " became the second R. The video, directed by Howard Libov, was filmed at the Reflection Studio in Charlotte, North Carolina during the recording of Reckoning there, and first aired in June It featured the members of the band playing their instruments behind white screens gobos in an otherwise empty room, with Michael Stipe singing in the foreground.
Stipe refused to lip sync to the song. The song is also featured in the Left of Reckoning video shot by James Herbert. Central Rain' is a million and a half years old. I remember when Michael wrote the lyrics to that.
We were actually traveling, and we were watching the news and there was a storm front through the South, and he tried to call home and the phone lines were down. And, if memory serves, it said 'south central rain' on the TV -- or maybe Michael made it up; I can't remember.
Central Rain" is jaunty country-rock played with a twist. The chorus is based around one of Buck's characteristic open-chord riffs with upright tack piano from bassist Mike Mills.
Ah, heard "Radio Free Europe" 45 at a party near the end of the school year my senior year in college. Later my future wife and I first heard the whole Murmur album while unloading her stuff we had hauled from the middle of the country to a friend's apartment where we could store it for a few weeks before we could move into our first student apartment in September so I could attend a "prestigious east coast graduate school". Young, exhausted, relatively penniless, and in love. REM music playing.
What could be better? I think I put Murmur in my all-time top I only saw REM live a few times - maybe 3 times during the '80s - but the first time was opening for The Police on the Sychronicity Tour c. The group that I went with to that show included eventual erstwhile Pavement multi-instrumentalist Bob Nastanovich who went to a neighboring high school. Good times. Post a Comment.
